Why should parents and carers be concerned?

Even though gambling is only legal for people aged 18 and over, studies show that 1 in 5 boys and 1 in 8 girls aged 16–17 reported having gambled in the past year. And research shows that many adults who experience problems with gambling began gambling before they were 18

What Is Be Ahead of The Game?

Be Ahead of the Game is a gambling awareness program for young people. It helps school communities understand how young people may be affected by gambling and mitigate the risks. The research-backed program is developed by the Victorian Responsible Gambling Foundation in partnership with Gambler’s Help community educators.
